Looks like I'm the parent of a college student again. Justin (our 24 year old) has decided to give college another go. Some of you 'old timers' might remember that he went off to school right after high school, did fine first semester and after a forced break up with his high school sweetheart at Christmas took a nose dive. A couple years later when he was back here he did try CC again but didn't really know what he wanted to do and therefore didn't put forth the effort. He had been working full time for a year at an asphalt company with decent money and benefits but lost that job in May. He's been unable to find anything since and has decided that instead of spending his life trying to find unskilled work he needs to do something to set himself apart. He'll start back on the 18th at the local CC majoring in criminal justice. His plan is to put in two semesters there to build his GPA back up and then transfer to Western Illinois University, which has a very good criminal justice program. He seems very motivated and determined this time so hopefully it will work out for him. He kind of feels like life is passing him by. We've had 'the talk' with him that this is his last chance for a do over, at least on our dime. He is still looking for part time work as well.
How about everyone else's CS? Getting ready for school?
